Tufts University: Tawanda Gwena - Mathematics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Tawanda Gwena | MATH011 - Calculus I | Mathematics2006-05-14

Review:
I would like to echo the sentiment of the reviews before me. This man is quite possibly the worst teacher I have ever had, no joke. He explained nothing in a way that me or any of my classmates could understand. He is a nice man yes, but we are not paying for nice professors, we are paying to learn, and that is something you will do none of if you take a class with Gwena. I taught the entire course to myself and stopped going to class because I realized it was a waste of time. DO NOT TAKE A CLASS WITH THIS GUY.

Workload:
Assignments and tests are the same for every Calc 1 class, so it doesn't matter what teacher you have. You will do much better on the tests if you don't have this guy.

Tawanda Gwena | MATH011 - Calculus I | Mathematics2006-05-10

Review:
DO NOT TAKE A CLASS WITH TAWANDA GWENA! He is nice enough, but a terrible, horrendous, horrific (get the picture?) teacher. He is terrible at explaining, and if you dont understand something, he cannot explain it in another way. He fails to make simple connections between topics that would make things more clear. In addition, he constantly makes fundamental mistakes when teaching, and if no one corrects him, you will just know the material wrong for the test. On top of that, he is terribly unreliable and says that if we have questions, we should contact him by e-mail, but he has never once returned an e-mail. I did decently in the class solely based upon my high school calculus and by talking to my roommate who had a different teacher. I don't know what Tufts was thinking when they hired this man.

Workload:
Amount of homework is standard for all Calc I classes (and it's not much work), so find yourself a better teacher.

Tawanda Gwena | MATH013 - Calculus III | Mathematics2005-06-13

Review:
I really liked the class. Prof Gwena is intelligent and carefully explains himself. I really understood this course and I would recommend it to anybody.

Workload:
Lots of homework and I liked it because, this helped me to understand the stuff.

Tawanda Gwena | MATH011 - Calculus I | Mathematics2005-05-22

Review:
Gwena is really nice, particularly outside of class, but I think he is a horrible teacher - very slow, very unclear and bad at explanation. Avoid.

Workload:
Homework every class, but it's doable. You know everything that's going to be on the tests because of merciful review sheets, but review sheets & tests (review sheets especially) are made artificially difficult. This is standard for all profs.

Tawanda Gwena | MATH013 - Calculus III | Mathematics2004-12-24

Review:
This teacher was horrible. It made me rethink Tufts. I was absolutely shocked that I was paying for this kind of education. I felt right back in high school. Really, avoid Gwena at all costs. He doesn't know anything about teaching and the class is very boring. He has to write everything out very formally, no abbreviations, and very very slowly.

Workload:
Standard department math homeworks, only they seemed harder because the material wasn't learned in class. Be prepared to buy a solutions manual because you have to teach this course to yourself.
